Amateur Gardening have teamed up with Forest Holidays to offer one lucky winner and up to 3 guests a weekend break in a luxury cabin set in breathtaking British woodland.

Accommodation will be in a fully equipped two bedroom Silver Birch cabin on a self-catering basis, sleeping up to four people. Each cabin comes with soaring windows with dramatic forest views and your own private hot tub from which to stargaze late into the night.

Choose from one of 9 stunning locations exclusively on Forestry Commission land, subject to availability.  While each location offers something different; from the tranquil lochs in Scotland, to the arresting views over the North York Moors at Cropton or Keldy, down to the invigorating coastal walks in Cornwall, all promise a perfect picture of stunning scenery as you venture on your countryside walk.

Whether you are travelling as a group of friends, a couple or with family, your cabin is your personal sanctuary in the forest. The freedom, the fresh air and the forest are yours to enjoy at your own pace. Get ready for action, choosing archery, kayaking or cycling. Or master the art of relaxing, opting for gentle woodland walks, enjoying a sensory spa treatment or simply unwinding in the private comfort of your cabin or hot tub. All Forest Holiday locations have cycle trails and woodland walks, plus a variety of outdoor activities including Forest Ranger activities.  Every location has a resident Forest Ranger – an expert in the life of the forest who is ready and eager to share their woodland skills and knowledge with you.  Dogs are also welcome in specific pet-friendly accommodation.  Visit to find out more.
